Eilean Isay is a traditional croft house, built in 1934 and set in 5 acres of croft land. This detached property enjoys a commanding and elevated position in the scattered crofting village of Lusta, with panoramic and breathtaking views over the waters of Loch Bay and the Outer Hebridean islands of Uist and Harris. It has been furnished and equipped to a good standard to ensure as comfortable and relaxing holiday as possible.
Set on the Waternish Peninsula to the north west corner of Skye, Eilean Isay makes the perfect base for exploring this beautiful island and also the Outer Hebrides as it is only 27 miles from Uig, the gateway port to the isles. The village of Dunvegan is only a 15-minute drive away and here you will find Dunvegan Castle, the stronghold of the Clan MacLeod with its beautiful gardens and historic fairy flag. Why not catch a boat trip and catch a glimpse of the seals or enjoy a spot of fishing? Take a short drive from Dunvegan and then walk to the stunning Coral Beach – highly recommended whatever the weather. Portree, the capital town, is just approximately 20 miles away and offers the usual small town facilities and amenities with a good range of shops, pubs and great places to eat, along with water sports, boat trips, galleries, a swimming pool and tea rooms.
To the north east of the island you will find the Trotternish Peninsula, famous for its dramatic rock formations and cliffs – a walkers paradise, and to the south of the island you will enter the Sleat Peninsula known as ‘The Garden of Skye’. Cross over the Skye Bridge which will take you to the stunning scenery of the west coast. Amongst the many activities to be enjoyed are mountain biking, hill climbing and walking, and a vast variety of water sports along with fishing and boat trips – so much to see and do for all ages. For the less energetic, sit back, relax and unwind, and enjoy the ever changing vistas from the comfort of your seat. Beach ½ mile. Shop 6½ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
